Overview

812ce 12-Fret

Watch Video
With their intimate feel and relaxed fretting, our 12-fret guitars offer players a unique musical personality with incredible playing comfort. The 812ce 12-Fret features a Grand Concert body with Indian rosewood back and sides, a Sitka spruce top, and V-Class bracing inside, producing top-end sparkle and warmth in the bass range with plenty of volume and sustain. The compact body helps keep notes articulate and clear, making this a great choice for fingerstyle players. A radius-style armrest takes the edge off the lower bout for a more seamless feel, and ES2 electronics deliver organic live sound. The 812ce 12-Fret ships with a deluxe hardshell case.

Features

Grand Concert

A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.

Indian Rosewood

The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.

Sitka Spruce

The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Venetian Cutaway

The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the body.

V-Class Bracing

Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
